CHARACTER ASSASSINATION Lyrics

Artist: Graham Parker
Album: Acid Bubblegum

doo doo etc

Am
She opens up and pulls you in, dabs a napkin on your chin
Em
She's like an ornament on a hood, does the mambo like a piece of wood
Am
Taking you under, taking you under, for the duration

The creamy liquid of your heart the vital substance that was part
of every beat and rhythm that has come unglued and riven
Taking you under, taking you under, beyond sensation

Em
How could you lose so many things your keys your car your diamond rings?
Am
The very things that gave you inspiration
Em
How could you get sucked up like that how could you get so fucked up
Am
and let her treat you like an aberration
Em Am
It's a character, character assassination

The monkey's paw and the powdered tusks the chicken feet and the corn husk Em
The Spanish fly and the ginseng root the snake oil and the lotus shoot Am
Ran out of magic, ran out of magic and stimulation

How could you lose yourself like that? It seemed so pure and violent
Until she hit you up for small change and devastation
How could you allow yourself to rot? Now you're vacant that's your lot
Now you've got to stop this disintegration
Like a character character assassination

intro doo doos

How could you drops so many balls? How could you blow so many calls?
And take so many falls and still keep on tripping
How could you miss so many shots? How could you write so many plots?
And wind up with a book that's less than gripping

You drop her hand like a dead leaf steal her heartbeat like a thief
Crush the bones beneath her skin the marrow and the calcium
Now you're under, now you're under investigation
For a character, character assassination

doo doos, fade
